Yesterday was a long day of running around as usual on a Sunday Holiday. We went to church, then to my mom's for lunch and then to Justin's mom's for dinner.
The food was great, but spending time with the family is what matters most. I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day and took sometime for themselves. I didn't get that yesterday so I am doing that this morning, drinking coffee and posting on this poor blog that I have neglected so bad.
I still cannot believe sometimes that I have two kids. lol :)
Ethan is getting better with his jealousy although I know it may never fully go away. He loves his sister though, even though he can be such a stinker to her sometimes.
Saturday I attended a brunch for CCHIAC (Cincinnati Children's Hospital International Adoption Center) fundraiser event that will take place in November at the Oscar event center. This is close to my heart as we are and will be utilizing so many of these great programs through CCH. They are raising money to fund these programs that wouldn't be possible without support from the community. I am on a couple of committees to gather items for Raffles/silent auctions and then to set up and assemble them on the day of. If anyone has anything they would like to donate no matter how small it will go to a great cause to help all families that come through CCH for IAC help. I am excited to be a part of this, to give a little back.
We have Samara's one month follow up appointment at CCH on Wednesday and then her occupational therapy appointment on the same day as well to figure out her eating issues. Hopefully!!! I'm sure this one appointment will not figure it out. We are going to meet with a swallow specialist and the feeding team as well just don't have those appointments yet. She has some issues with eating, holds food in her mouth for a long time, regurgitates, pukes, won't take a bottle,sippy cup or drink for herself. Feeding time at my house is stressful and she needs the nutrients so my day is filled with trying to get her to eat and drink. I am getting to my wits end with this so I am hopeful they can shed some light on all of this.
Friday was a really nice day and so I got the kiddie pool out for the kids and they played for a little bit. It might have been a bit early but it was so nice out and I made the water warm for them. They had fun, Samara's first experience in a pool.
I will post again after her appointments on Wednesday and let you know what we find out.
